" this is macabre, but when an artist dies their sales spike big time. Many dead 'stars' make more money now then they did while they were alive. "

There is an "old" CBS story making the rounds anew about "delebs". This guy, Cribbs, is kind of the major force. He is the one who first got James Dean's family in Iowa in the 80's some money. Until then they had no idea that anybody was even making money off of Dean. It's a pretty good article if that kind of stuff interests ya.
